Sisters’ Christmas party

On Monday most of our p-day was spent at the sister missionaries’ Christmas party, held at the Sister Training Leaders’ apartment. It was so charming, with a little hot chocolate bar and dessert table it was almost as if we were allowed to look at Pinterest in our spare time. We mingled for about an hour and then had a white elephant gift exchange, in which I received a jewelry container and some hand warmers.
On Tuesday we had a lesson with a less-active member who is now fully embracing the gospel. We passed by his house the other day and saw that he had taken out the picture of Jesus from the Book of Mormon and put it on his front door.
On Wednesday we had a lesson with an investigator at Tim Horton’s, which is a fairly common occurrence for us. That is one thing I miss about a family ward, having lessons in houses! But sometimes people buy us donuts, which more than makes up for the lack of quiet!
Thursday we served at the shelter, then passed by a girl in the Ward. I had felt like seeing her, and that night was perfect because she was about to go home for the holidays and would not have been there for much longer! We shared the “A Savior is Born” video with her and her boyfriend.
Friday we had Weekly Planning and had poutine after. It was tasty.
Saturday among other things we had transfer calls! I am staying, my companion is going to Montreal, so I am getting a new companion. Changes, every day!
I love you all!
